    What do you guys think of this tie Cee Lo's wearing in his "F you" video? I think it has a cool and unique look to it.

    BTW, if you havent seen it yet check it out here and be prepared to play it over and over and over again...

    I don't know. Proportionally, i think it looks weird given his largesse and 6 inch lapels.

    Agreed, it's too skinny for him.

    He still looks bad ass overall, though.

    I like Cee Lo. But it's all in context - given who he is, he pulls it off. I couldn't.

    Glad I won't have to look at it on the display tables at BG.

    I think it is the perfect tie to wear if your video is set in a 50's diner.

    First, the orginial "karaoke" version was better. The song is great and the video kind of distracts.

    Second, Cee Lo is wearing a zoot suit. The tie is perfect. In fact, for a zoot suit, it's pretty conservative.

    Third, it was probably the hottest internet phenomenon of the year but now that SF is arguing about the width of Cee Lo's tie, Cee Lo's "Fuck You" video is officially over.

    All that effort for the video and no collar stays. Fail.

    Just noting this for posterity. You must be super cool to have been a part of the hottest internet phenomenon of the year from the beginning. Too bad it's now officially "over" whatever the hell that means. Ceelo wrote a song, posted a video on youtube and people watched it. There is nothing exclusive about it.

    To me, his tie in the video looks cheap.

    I feel like I see "black and white checkered skinny ties" on eBay all the time. Sold from somewhere in Asia for less than $5.

    Who knows where the costume designer came up with that piece. It very well could have been custom made. Or given their budget, they got it a thrift shop. Probably closer to the former than the latter.
